An amazing opportunity…
At Horizon Day Camp we are always looking for amazing individuals who wish to become part of our staff family.  We laugh, play and learn together; all while providing the summer of a lifetime for our campers.  Staff at Horizon are role models, mentors, leaders and friends to campers.  We hire counselors, specialists, administrators and leadership team members.

The first step is to complete our application.   Once we receive your application and one reference, you will be contacted for an interview.  Links to the application and references can be found below.  Please note, our applications and references are fillable PDF documents and the following instructions should be followed:

**Please download the PDF to your desktop, and then open with Adobe Reader(5.0 or later), Adobe Acrobat, or Mac Preview, before typing in the information.
